Well, I had to tell a lie about being out of town for a few weeks to get it sooner than the very end of July! The point of the scan is physical abnormalities and such, but gender isn’t a part of it. “Well, the tech might get the chance to see something…”, but the tech can’t say anything for this scan as there won’t be a doctor present at this time to back up what the tech says. So even if the tech can tell, I don’t get to know?! I’m pissed. When I went in yesterday, the resident doctor I saw wouldn’t even go near gender.
FFS, this is the ONE thing about this pregnancy that might get to be normal for me, finding out the official prediction on gender and it feels like they’ve decided it absolutely doesn’t matter, so I don’t get to know. I shouldn’t be having to twist arms, and then to still be told no, that’s not what a scan is for, and I’ve had NO Luck getting a scan to find out the gender.
I want to get to look forward to SOMETHING, you know? I find out yesterday they’re concerned I could die during delivery, so at least let me have the gender and gender-specific planning to look forward to if I’m now afraid to think about the future.
I’m looking into paying for a 3D/4D ultrasound to find out. I want this ONE normal part of pregnancy!! I feel it’s a girl, but want to know.
So now net Friday I have an appointment at the cancer center, which is the advanced condition center, with a GI colorectal surgeon team, an OB appointment on I think the 8th, and then the anatomy scan on the 10th, and then whenever I can get in somewhere for a 3D/4D scan. Hopefully I won’t need my doctor’s approval. For some reason I don’t think I’d get it.
Anyone complaining about only getting appointments just once a month are more than welcome to trade places with me. I just want a nice, normal, boring pregnancy where there’s no reason to see a doctor every couple weeks, averaging actually about weekly. More if you consider days where I have two or three appointments in the same day.
I just want this one normal thing.
